Must-Visit Casinos When Travelling the World

Must-Visit Casinos When Travelling the World

The biggest casino venue in the world is Macau, and it is also the place where you will find some of the world’s largest casinos. Macau is China’s answer to Las Vegas but on an even larger scale. There are many casinos located there, but one that is worthy of note is the Venetian, the largest casino in the world. The casino is a kind of mock up of Venice with a central canal which is crossed my many small bridges and along the banks of which you can take a stroll and visit some of the top haute couture and designer outlets. 

Many people associate world casinos with Las Vegas. There are two main casino locations there, downtown and The Strip. The casinos come in many different styles, and will suit many different tastes, but one that you should certainly aim at visiting is the Bellagio. In terms of scale it is huge, and it is easy to get lost inside; however for sumptuousness it is very difficult to better. It is famous for its display of dancing fountains lights and music that are held on its lake in form of the building, a major tourist attraction. 

In Europe one of the best casinos to visit in the world is the casino of Monte Carlo. It is very different from the kind of casinos you find in Macau and Las Vegas. It’s history dates from the middle of the nineteenth century. Lavish both externally and within, it feels much more up market than most casinos. Over the years it has become legendary, and numerous heroes and anti-heroes have been associated with it. It has featured in various James Bond movies and was used in Ocean’s 12. The casino generates so much revenue that locals no longer pay any taxes, but then Monte Carlo has more billionaires per square mile than anywhere else in the world.

Austenland by Shannon Hale {Book AND Movie Review}

Synopsis According to Goodreads
Jane is a young New York woman who can never seem to find the right man—perhaps because of her secret obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. When a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-obsessed women, however, Jane’s fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. Is this total immersion in a fake Austenland enough to make Jane kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own? Don't miss Shannon Hale's next book, Midnight in Austenland, a mystery set at Pemberly available in February, 2012.

Starts With Goodbye {Musical Mondays & Giveaway}

This week's song:
Starts With Goodbye
by Carrie Underwood

I was sitting on my doorstep
I hung up the phone and it fell out of my hand
But I knew I had to do it and he wouldn't understand
So hard to see myself without him 
I felt a piece of my heart break
But when you're standing at a crossroads there's a choice you've gotta make
